Studio Sale Preview: Works on Paper

I have long had an absolute love of paper. I adored school supply shopping as a kid and continue to collect notebooks like a small hoarding dragon. There is just something so beautifully tangible and tactile-y satisfying about paper—the texture, color, and pattern variations of paper just make my heart happy. 

Back when I was working in book publishing, I would push for the best paper and cover options for my authors. Who doesn't love a french flap paperback or a paper-over-board hardcover and a deckle edge page? *swoon*

My lifelong love of good paper made a natural appearance in my art practice. I collect great papers from adorable stationery and art stores during my travels and bring them home to use in studies and smaller works of art. 

The 2023 Studio Sale includes a number of different works on paper that I am so thrilled to share with you.
